PrestaShop 1.7.7.0 RC1 Is Ready To Be Tested!

We are really happy to announce that we are very close to finishing the 1.7.7.0 release, the release candidate is the last step before the final version is out.

1.7.7.0 RC1 is available!

This release candidate aims at making sure that all major regressions found during the beta have been fixed, and that no new ones have been spotted. If no new critical or major regression is reported by November 17th, we will make the final version of 1.7.7.0 available.

Please note that it is not currently possible to perform an automatic upgrade from the Beta to the Release Candidate.

Furthermore, it will not be possible to upgrade from this Release Candidate to the final release. If you perform an update of your test store to the RC version, you will need to rollback to your current version before being able to upgrade to the final 1.7.7.0.

Please download, install and test this new version of PrestaShop and give us your feedback as early as possible. The later a problem is identified, the more time it takes to be fixed, and this delays the final release.

If you find regressions compared to the 1.7.6 version, please open an issue and describe it on Github so that it can be reproduced and fixed as soon as possible.

Remember, this release candidate version is pre release software. Do not use it on your production shop!

Automated Tests

The 1.7.7 version is by far the most tested version ever released by PrestaShop, this ensures its stability and prevents future regressions that could be created by future developments.
Here are some numbers about PrestaShop’s automatic tests (and the difference with our previous minor release, 1.7.6):

  • UI tests (sanity + functional): 4307 (whole new campaigns)
  • Integration: 55 tests (+3)
  • Behavior: 518 scenarios, 8838 steps (+297 scenarios, +6133 steps)
  • Unit: 1998 tests (+31)

The UI tests, especially, have been completely redesigned. If you want more information about this please read these two articles:
